Tuition is cut 18 percent at this law school

The Roger Williams University School of Law is cutting tuition by about $7,600 and locking in the rate for three years for full-time, continuously enrolled students.

The law school in Rhode Island announced the 18 percent tuition cut in a press release on Wednesday. The Wall Street Journal Law Blog and the Associated Press covered the news.

Tuition will be lowered from $41,400 to $33,792 for the 2014-15 school year. Current law students receiving financial aid have a choice: They can keep their aid package at current tuition rates, or they can waive financial aid and pay the new tuition.

Other law schools announcing tuition cuts include the University of Iowa (16 percent), the University of Arizona (11 percent for in-state residents and 8 percent for out-of-state residents), the University of Cincinnati (30 percent for out-of-state residents), and Pennsylvania State (nearly 50 percent for in-state residents).
